The American Red Cross works with a global network of Red Cross and Red Crescent societies, as well as Israel's Magen David Adom society, to restore hope and dignity to the world's vulnerable populations. This international Red Cross movement brings emergency relief to disaster victims and improves basic living conditions of those in chronically deprived areas of the world.
The American Red Cross partners with countless organizations in the efficient and effective relief of human suffering and in the empowerment of people with the skills they need to help themselves.
Many residents in Colorado region have origins in other countries. When these families are unexpectedly torn apart by war, disaster, migration or other humanitarian crises, workers at our local Red Cross chapters help re-establish communication between family members when no other communication is possible.
